Ladbrokes shares opened at 117p and were down 10 percent from Thursday.

Paddy Power/Betfair’s value plummeted 25 percent to 6500p per share.

William Hill’s shares were driven down to 237p from 300p.

Each company experienced a slight recovery by day’s end with Ladbrokes closing at 121.84 for a total drop of just under 6 percent.  William Hill had climbed back up to 270p.  Paddy Power, which is headquartered out of Ireland, fully recovered by day’s end.

Stocks in the US had fallen more than 3 percent Friday (the Dow Jones Industrial), which could result in a further decline in gambling company shares when markets open on Monday.
